What can the Tribunal decide

After it reviews your appeal, the Tribunal will either:

  1. turn down your appeal because it agrees the decision made was correct; or
  2. agree the decision was correct, but ask the Minister of Immigration to consider giving you a visa because of your special circumstances; or
  3. agree the decision was correct at the time it was made, but send it back to Immigration New Zealand because there is new information about a particular event that happened after the decision was made; or
  4. decide the decision was wrong and send it back to Immigration New Zealand so they can consider the application again; or
  5. decide the decision was wrong, and direct Immigration New Zealand to grant you a visa.
